As women age, the hormonal changes associated with menopause can lead to a wide variety of uncomfortable symptoms, such as burning, dryness, and urinary incontinence. Unfortunately, although the majority of postmenopausal women are affected, only about 20-25% talk to their doctor about treatment.
The OB/GYN providers at Southern Crescent Women’s HealthCare, with offices in Fayetteville, Newnan, and Stockbridge, Georgia, want you to feel comfortable talking about these symptoms, because they have a quick and painless solution: the MonaLisa Touch®.
The MonaLisa Touch is a cutting-edge vaginal rejuvenation treatment that harnesses the power of gentle laser energy to stimulate collagen production and restore vaginal health. At Southern Crescent Women’s HealthCare, we love bringing the MonaLisa Touch to our patients, because the treatment takes less than five minutes, is painless, and provides fast results for multiple problems.
Here’s why the MonaLisa Touch might be right for you.
If you experience changes in estrogen due menopause, cancer treatments, or breastfeeding after childbirth, your vaginal tissues can thin and lose lubrication. And this can cause a lack of moisture in your vagina, resulting in vaginal dryness and burning. The MonaLisa Touch can stimulate the production of lubrication and alleviate your symptoms.
The same hormonal changes that cause dryness and burning can interfere with your sex life, too. The thinner, drier tissues can cause your vaginal walls to lose elasticity. This can make sex uncomfortable and painful.
MonaLisa Touch treatments can do more than trigger vaginal lubrication. They can also stimulate your body’s natural collagen and elastin production, and thereby help restore the health of your vaginal tissue and make sex fun again.
If you’ve noticed some leaks when you sneeze or laugh, you’re not alone. One of the most common gynecological complaints from patients over age 35 is a lack of bladder control. If you’re suffering from urinary incontinence, the MonaLisa Touch offers a minimally invasive solution.
The gentle laser energy, which is painless but powerful, can rejuvenate your vaginal tissues and tone your pelvic floor muscles to help improve your bladder control.
Vaginal laxity is the term used to describe an increase in the diameter of your vagina. This can occur after you’ve had a baby as well as part of the aging process. The fractional laser energy of the MonaLisa Touch can help you feel like you again.
The treatment can increase your body’s collagen production as well as tighten your vaginal opening and the tissues around it. At the same time, the treatment can help thicken, tone, and hydrate your tissues to improve your overall vaginal health.
If your vagina doesn’t have the right balance of moisture and lubrication, you’ll be more likely to develop chronic vaginal and urinary infections. The MonaLisa Touch can cause your vaginal tissues to become more lubricated and toned, and thereby make it easier for your body to fight off infections.
If you have problems with your vaginal health, the MonaLisa Touch can help. To learn more, book an appointment online or over the phone with Southern Crescent Women’s HealthCare today.
